With the vibrations from the stomping of feet in the bleachers inside the two-year-old Burbank High gymnasium, Wayne Teng fed off the noise from the crowd. The Bulldog girls' volleyball coach showed plenty of emotion on his team's bench. It didn't matter if his emotion flowed during a timeout or following a key defensive play. Playing cross-town rival Burroughs also fanned Teng's emotions. Lauren Rowsey finished with 19 kills to power host Burbank to a 25-15, 26-28, 25-12, 25-20 Foothill League victory against rival Burroughs on Tuesday night.

Her freshman year in Pullman, Wash., last season resulted in abnormally-low numbers -- 1.59 kills per game, .59 blocks per game -- not the sort of statistics the former La Salle High (Pasadena)

The man accused of gunning down eight people at a Seal Beach hair salon pleaded guilty Friday, setting the stage for a legal battle over whether he should be put to death for the 2011 slayings.
